Conclusion: We have no reservations about giving the Canon EOS 7D an Editor’s Choice designation – it’s a great DSLR that just so happens to record high-definition videos. The big question, though: Is the camera worth its steep asking price?
Excerpt: Maybe you’re tired of using a crappy point-and-shoot. Or, maybe you feel like you’ve outgrown your awesome, yet dated, PowerShot G9. Maybe you’re just looking to strap up a full-featured DSLR. Canon’s newest 7D is the way to go. There’s no maybe about it.
Pros: Solid build and weatherproofing with pro-style feel in hand. Frame rate is sport-shooter ready. Wireless control of external Speedlite flashes. 8 frames per second in RAW makes us swoon.
Cons: Noisy pop-up flash motor. Quick-control dial on the back of the camera takes more effort to turn than previous Canon models. Auto white balance in artificial light is bronze-medal worthy at best.
Conclusion: The Canon EOS 7D is one of the best midrange D-SLRs money can buy. But if you don't need comprehensive video recording features or ultra-high-resolution images, there are a handful of competing D-SLRs that produce comparable image quality for half the price.
Pros: Excellent still-image and HD-video quality. Fast performance. Various HD video recording options.
Cons: Pricey. Video recording is not as simple as with a dedicated camcorder.
Summary: If you can justify the price tag it's hard to fault Canon's new APS-C flagship. With class-leading image quality, fast operation and excellent handling the EOS 7D is everything a semi-pro model should be--and the excellent movie mode will be a welcome bonus to those that like their pictures to move.
Pros: Class-leading detail and resolution at base ISO, good per-pixel sharpness, Very good low-light performance, low noise levels and good retention of detail, 8 frames per second continuous shooting speed, Thanks to Dual Digic 4 processors very quick and responsive performance, Excellent build qualit...
Cons: Unreliable white balance under artificial lighting, Slight tendency to overexpose in contrasty conditions, Occasional jagged lines in 720p video, No built-in AF illuminator
Conclusion: The camera has a mouth-watering specification, especially if you like things fast and detailed. For the picky user, the initial noise levels seen at 100% with an ISO 100 image taken on a grey day were enough to raise an eyebrow.
Summary: The Canon EOS 7D is definitely for the action photographer: It has a fast burst mode and captures huge images. Its high ISO performance is very good, but we found its focus to be hit and miss.
Pros: Fast burst mode, solid body, versatile focusing modes, very good high ISO performance
Cons: Focusing wasn't always accurate, could use more accessible focus controls
